Via AZZ.com, we see that CB Ryland Ward has made a verbal commitment to be a Falcon. Ryland is a two-star recruit that BG beat 5 other MAC schools to get. ESPN.com is really high on him, and I think he would have been ranked even higher if were taller (he is only 5'10"). He is from Columbus Brookhaven, which is also the home of one of our basketball recruits for next Fall.
Ward was first team all-state, all-district and all-metro first team, playing FS in HS, apparently.
Best of all, perhaps, is this:
Ward is an intense and talented player that loves to compete and determined to make plays.
Of course, that's exactly the kind of player we are recruiting....the kind that loves to play football.
Welcome to the Falcons Ryland.
